Overwrited existing partitions and OS's

Long story short...


I set up dual boot on my XPS - 9333, with Windows 8, and Ubuntu, everything was great.

Yesterday I broke my Ubuntu system and I couldn't restore it. So I attempted to make a new Ubuntu install but overwrited EVERYTHING! Windows + Ubuntu, including recovery partitions it would seem.

So what do I do? How do I start again? - I need the factory build. The partitions / drive back to normal and Windows 8.


Help will be appreciated, thanks!

RE: Overwrited existing partitions and OS's

If you prepared a set of recovery media when you received the system, that will serve to reload the system.  If you did not, you will need to contact Dell to obtain the recovery media to reset the system.
